Val Ferret from La Fouly by Edwin
August 04, 2022 · Community
Found this trailrunroute on this page. Beforehand I was a bit concerned about the part between petit and grand Col Ferret but this was lovely meadows, a spectacular view over Italy and only a few parts where there's a more steep climb. I could enjoy the views and the solitude there before joining the crowded path of the TMB. The "extra" part after la Peule before returning to la Fouly was optional for me. I decided at la Peule to do that part as well and I'm glad I did. Solitude and silence again. A steep climb but through lovely bushes and flowers into a beautifull valley.
